New York land with 11 acre pond, small camp, fantastic waterfowl property with multiple large beaver ponds, established walkways to duck blinds for sale. This is a unique property and probably among the best waterfowl properties in this part of Western New York. The amazing matrix of water and flooded grasses, sedges and cattails make this a mecca for both resident and migrating birds. This is one of the largest known arrowhead beds in the region producing plenty of seed as feed for the waterfowl. The NRCS has a conservation easement through the Wetland Reserve Program (WRP) on 157.33 acres of the property, thereby protecting the wetlands and the quality habitat here for generations to come. Please visit our direct website for a complete copy of the WRP easement.

The owner has spent considerable effort to create elevated walkways into selected areas within the wetland where some of the best waterfowl hunting can be found. In those areas he has also constructed duck blinds for just an amazing hunting or wildlife viewing experience. When the listing broker walked this property, he easily flushed and saw several hundred ducks and geese without exaggeration.

The non-wetland area is a good, high and dry site with a small camp on skids that has electric. The camp is situated on the Van Der Linden pond which is about 11 acres in size, making for a beautiful setting with an equally nice view of the surrounding hillsides. Watch the ducks and geese or fish and kayak on the pond! There is plenty of room here for a quality camp or home that will not impact any of the wetland property nor be anywhere near the WRP area on the property.

The Genesee Greenway Trail follows the eastern boundary of the property providing the public the opportunity to walk the currently open section of the trail. It does not provide the public with access to this property, but it does provide the owner with better access to this property. The trail is not open along the full length, so the use currently is limited to the south end of the property.

The property is just minutes from Cuba Lake for excellent fishing and boating, as well as being within about 3 miles of thousands of acres of NYS Forest for hiking, hunting, mountain biking and much more.

The Seller owns the oil, gas and mineral rights and they will transfer to the new owner. The property is located at 5838 Route 305 and has approximately 890 feet of road frontage with electric on site. It also has about 530 feet of frontage on South Road and 1.180 feet of frontage on Jackson Hill Road. The snowmobile trail runs on the property along Jackson Hill Road .
